Storyline

The Enterprise's mission is aborted to return to a star-base where Admiral Brackett charges them with investigating the disappearance, possibly defection to the ever-scheming Romulans, of dying Federation ambassador Sarek's son Spock, who didn't say goodbye to his parents but took all his personal belongings after a public row with Sarek over the Cardassian war. A visit from Picard makes them realize the key must be Romulan senator Pardek, with whom Spock maintains since years personal contacts, against Sarek's will. Meanwhile Klingon leader Gowron is writing the Federation's help in the civil war out of official history, so Picard resorts to suggestions to get him to provide a cloaked ship, reluctantly piloted by Captain K'Vada, for this mission, with Data, both prepared to impersonate Romulans on Romulus... Meanwhile Commander William T. Riker and Troy find examining the disappearance of a Federation ship to and from the Ferengi most dangerous... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Since this episode was broadcast in November 1991, the month before the release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), it could be considered promotion for the motion picture. Spock's dialogue mentioning the movie's overtures of peace with the Klingons and incident at Camp Khitomer, but not the outcomes of either, would support this. See more »

Goofs

When Dokachin access the Enterprise computer and downloads the registry of the Vulcan ship they were looking for, he says the Stardate of arrival was "41344", although the computer display clearly shows "41334". See more »

Sarek Is Dying
1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode brings back the two most significant Vulcans, Sarek and his son, Mr. Spock, with whom he has fallen into conflict. Spock has disappeared and it is rumored that he had defected, possibly to the Romulans. Picard visits Sarek as he lies in great pain on his bed and tries to figure out what has happened to Spock. Unfortunately, the Vulcans have never made peace. Picard and Data enlist the help of the Klingons (they need a cloaked vessel), alter their appearance, and head for Romulus. There is an underground movement on the planet and after rooting out this group, find that Spock is with them in a leadership position. He is hoping to bring about change on Romulus toward peace and is willing to take great risks to do this. The tension in the episode has to do with the fact that one never knows who his enemies are. The Romulan high command is aware that there are subversives around and will do whatever it takes to suppress them. This takes us to the second episode.
